I used half brown sugar and half white sugar and I used almond butter instead of peanut butter! Great for the holidays or just any time!
My only complaint is, that it didn't make enough with just one batch!! Thank you for our new fav cookie! ( I did let it boil longer than 1 min, just to make sure it set)
For anyone who is having trouble with them setting - forget the brown sugar and use white sugar. I have found that if I use brown sugar I have to leave them sitting for at least a day before they will harden. I don't have the same issue if I use white sugar. My mother made these when I was growing up and we called them "Candy Cookies"
I was looking for a recipe that had no eggs and no chocolate and was so excited to try this! I halved the recipe, because I did not have enough brown sugar and I used almondcoconut milk instead. I also added walnuts and raisins, so yummy!
Halve the sugar. Increase the oats by 1/4 to 1/2 cup. Boil the milk, butter and sugar for 2-4 minutes. White sugar works too, but will produce a more crumbly cookie. Use a tablespoon to place heaping spoonfuls on parchment paper. Cool completely at room temperature. I used soy milk and added 1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds for an added crunch.
LOVED THESE. made them for the kids and they adored them. I originally wanted to make chocolate ones but ran out of cocoa powder, so i found this recipe. After starting it i realized i had hot cocoa mix and hot fudge. so when boiling ingredients, i added one tablespoon of hot fudge and one pack of hot cocoa mix. they turned out wonderful.
I made these cookies yesterday after reading all the reviews, Only thing I changed was I added one more cup of oatmeal and they were just awsome cookies. I also lined a square pan with plastic wrap , spread it in the pan and cut them into bars... They are yummy !
this recipe was vary good made some of my own changes really good STRONG "butter" ;) and strong "chocolate" on the top of them makes for some good times
I love these cookies. I make them all the time. Usually I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out fine... a little soft but still delicious. The last time that I made them I made sure to use real butter, boiled the mixture for two minutes and I added some whole flaxseed to the oatmeal mixture (ground flaxseed loses its goodness if it gets hot) I will continue making these for my family and for the people at my DH's work. They love them too.
These cookies turned out great. After reading the reviews I did follow a couple of suggestions and made some of my own changes. I used quick oats, cut the vanilla to 1 tsp, used 1 1/2 c brown sugar, dark almond chocolate milk, and 1 c of chocolate chips which were added after mixing the hot milk mixture into the oat mixture. The other change made was cooking the milk mixture for about 2 minutes or so instead of 1. They came out firm and delicious. I've had three so far.
